§ 16. Mr. BYRNE
asked the President of the Board of Trade if he has received a letter from Mr. Scott, of the Dublin Port and Docks Board, controverting the accuracy of the information sent by that Board to the Board of Trade as to the financial condition of the Dublin Port and Docks Board being due to the Dublin strike and the War; and whether, in view of this statement of a responsible member of the Board, he will hold an inquiry into the condition and management of the said Board?
I have received two letters from Mr. Scott from which it appears that he is not in accord with the views of the majority of his colleagues on the Dublin Port and Docks Board regarding the financial condition of that Board. I have no power to order an inquiry into the condition and management of the Board.
